Tracy Ebanks, one of the most respected and experienced finance professionals in the Cayman Islands, has been appointed as director of the Northern Caribbean at the Annual General Meeting of the Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB).

Ebanks, CEO/General Manager of the Cayman Islands Development Bank, received overwhelming support from her fellow members at the Harbor Club Resort in Saint Lucia on October 26. More than 200 bankers from around the region and beyond attended the AGM to discuss critical issues facing the region’s finance industry.

Tanya Watson-Francis, General Manager at National Commercial Bank Jamaica, was also voted director for the Northern Caribbean.

Leesa Kow, Managing Director of the Jamaica-based JN Bank, is the new chair of CAB. Kow was elected unopposed during the association’s 49th AGM. She replaces Dalton Lee, founder and chairperson of the Bank of Montserrat, who served two terms as CAB chair. Lee was elected to serve as director for the Eastern Caribbean and Barbados.

A previous director for the Association’s Northern Caribbean region, Kow brings to the position a wealth of experience and success as a business leader in the financial services sector and telecommunications industry in Jamaica and overseas. A 20-year veteran in financial services, she has also served as chairperson of CAB’s advocacy committee.

Michael Walcott, General Manager, Overseas Operations at Republic Financial Holdings, was elected deputy chairperson. Joining Lee as a director for the Eastern Caribbean and Barbados is Victor Boyce, Managing Director of ANSA Bank (Barbados), who takes over from Frances Parravicino in representing ANSA Bank on the board.

Keshwar Khodai, Group Treasury Head at First Citizens Bank in Trinidad and Tobago, and Evelyn Wayne, Director, Economic Policy and Development at the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, also return to the board.
